    Have been thinking about it for a while. I have 14 hens & 1 roo, who are my layers, but my girls are missing having babies around, been reading up on silkies and how they are so cuddly and great with kids.

    So I called over the weekend to a lady a few towns over who had posted silkies for sale. Went over today with my youngest, and looked at what she had. She did have a beautiful lavender, but it was a roo.

    I saw a blue black silkie I liked, held her & she went to sleep in my hand, 4 months. Then we looked at the buff colored ones, but did not see any to my liking. Then there was a partridge, gray/black with the beige color mixed in, 2 months.

    They are such beautiful birds. Never bought chickens from craigslist. But I'm really thinking to buy some Silkies and Araucanas from craig's list sometime.
